In a nailbiting encounter at the Ta’ Qali Pavillion, Athleta Compleet IS won the basketball BOV Knockout final when they beet a spirited Rabat Depiro with a final score of 73-69.

The session scores were as follows: Athleta v Depiro – 13-16, 21-12, 23-18, 14-19

One must note that Athleta came into this came following a harder preliminary stage where they had to sweat it out in the semifinal of this competition against Bupa Luxol. Michael Naudi was once again pivotal in the KO success for Athleta with 33 points against Luxol in the semifinal and another 21 points in the final making him the MVP for this competition.

Luxol, last year’s champions,  have another chance to beat Athleta when they face-off in the Championship pool games which will decide the winner of this year’s basketball league. Athleta are currently topping the standings with 23 points after having dropped 1 game out of 12. They are followed by a much improved Siggiewi side with 21 points while Luxol lie in third position with 17 points.
